Haojue motorcycles are one of the least heard motorcycles in Bangladesh – mainly because the target audience of these motorcycles are people who are busy in their life and, riding their bikes! But, things are about to change, cause Haojue Motorcycle Bangladesh is going to bring a 160cc performance machine – Haojue DR160 in Bangladesh!
Haojue started their journey in Bangladesh a few years back, and since then they have concentrated on mostly commuter and cruiser bikes. They have a good line-up which contains Haojue KA 135, Haojue TR150, etc. But, one thing was missing from this line-up, which was a 150-165cc sports commuter which can go head to head with all the Indian or Chinese 150-165cc sporty bikes, and the upcoming Haojue DR 160 could be just that!
Haojue DR160 is designed and build entirely by Haojue, and it will be one of the few 160cc motorcycle available in Bangladesh. As Karnaphuli Industries is the sole distributor or Haojue motorcycles in Bangladesh, it is expected that the bike will be available all around the country and will have a good and competitive price tag.
Haojue DR160 – All You Need To Know
At first look, Haojue DR 160 seems like a total package of an aggressive naked sports bike. From the tip of the headlight to the edge of the grab rail, it is really stylish in every curve. The first thing that catches the attention is the headlight which looks robotic, and above them are the indicators which is an unorthodox positioning and looks really attractive.
Behind the headlight, there is a muscular fuel tank with sporty cowlings and curves with a black lookalike strip finish in the middle section. The seats are split, and the pillion seat is raised a little bit for better seating posture and there is also grabrail for pillion comfort. The air scoop under the engine not only works but also looks gorgeous.
The speedometer of the bike is full digital. It features speed counter, Rev Counter, and all of the standard features. The handlebar is a three-part handle, and upright. The combination of seat and handlebar should give a totally comfortable commuting experience while the rest of the bike providing the beauty and the punch.
The features on the bike is just endless. Haojue DR160 has inverted front suspension in the front, and monoshock in the rear. It has dual disc brake setup with CBS braking system implemented, and a really light chassis. In theory, the chassis, the modern suspensions and the fat tyres altogether should provide a really good controlling.
The 162cc engine inside the chassis has Fuel Injection system and pumps out a max power of 15 bhp and a torque figure of 14NM. On paper it looks enough and competitive with the rest of the pack, and will surely perform well in different conditions. It is an air cooled unit which has a really muscular exhaust pipe which will definitely be an add on to the beauty.
The bike weighs 148kgs, and can carry 12L of fuel in the tank which in just average. Based on the engine and the weight, 12L of fuel should be enough for not only commutes but also long rides!
It is really great to see not only Indian but also Chinese manufacturers like Lifan and now Haojue bringing in their 165cc models to take the full advantage of the updated cc limit. Haojue DR160 looks like the ace of the Haojue line-up they needed all this time to bring in attention, hype and interest, and surely it will straight be a really good competitor of the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and TVS Apache RTR 160.
